... thirty a.m. (central time) when i took my first dose (a whole 8mg) and then it was about two thirty p.m. that i took my second dose of 8mg. I feel better for a while and can deal with life but I am not sure how often I should be taking it and how much. I want to detox fairly fast as i have heard it is possible. I have detoxed from heroin once before cold turkey and it was pure HELL. This seems like a much nicer roure. I am also addicted to benzodiazepines (1mg xanax a day) and heard there could be some interaction with suboxone. please any dosing information and any other info on my situation would be greatly appreciated. I feel totally fine on an 8mg dose every twelve hours except for a nagging pain in my legs. how long does each suboxones effects last? I know it has a very high half-life but the actual effects time is what Im wondering. I am afraid if i take another dose too soon that it will send me into hell fire w.d.s. please any advice and information on my situation would be a God send. thank you in advance.
From what i've herd from most doctors, they say to take a 8mg in the morning when you first wake up and your second around 5pm, some people need more i don't see how, my first day i took 8mg i was f cked up for most of the day but i was only taking 10 vics a day. And like me after a few days i had myself down to a 1/2 of a quarter and that would last sometimes all day unfortunatly 3 months later i'm still taking the same amount sometimes more, and i really don't even get anything out of it.
Bottom line you can do it in a few weeks if you really want to.
You are going to want to stay on as small a dose as possible. When a doctor inducts you, he gives you the COWS sheet test and during the first 36 hours, they have you do it yourself at home to see how long the suboxone last for you. COWS stands for clinical opiate withdrawal scale and if you are not hitting 26 on it, you shouldn't need to redose. See if you can simply stay on 8 mgs for 24 hours. It is true that most doctors will not prescribe benzos with suboxone as you can quit breathing, but they do make some exceptions. Don't start taking more of the benzo.
